Children’s Auditions
We understand that for a lot of children they may not have auditioned much if at all before. Here is what we are expecting: They should come prepared to sing a short piece from something they know well. It is very helpful if they bring their own sheet music. An accompanist will be provided. A Capella and karaoke auditions are discouraged. There will also be a dance audition. They should be dressed comfortably. They do not need to have a dance background, but be ready to try out new things and to have some fun.

Adult Auditions
Auditioners should come prepared to sing 35 bars of a musical theater piece. Please bring your own sheet music. An accompanist will be provided. Be prepared for a dance audition. The non-singing parts of the Elmira Gultch (The Wicked Witch) and The Professor (Wizard) will be asked to do cold reads from the script.

Casting 3 principal females and 5 principal males, plus a large adult ensemble and a children’s ensemble.
